Association of Professional Towers - Ohio


APTO is an association for Ohio towing and recovery professionals dedicated to furthering safety and professionalism in the Ohio Towing Industry.

Our aim is to operate a fundamentally sound and respected trade association focused on:

Our Mission...


Causes we care about. Donate to the PAC and Injured Driver Fund.

Our mission is to create a fellowship of professional towing & recovery employees that contributes to a brighter future for all members who endeavor to be the best they can be, through camaraderie, education, training, and raised awareness of safety.

APTO was created to directly serve the interests of towing and recovery operators in the state of Ohio. For far too long, the focus has solely been on towing companies, not those that work in the trenches. But the truth is, without the thousands of towing and recovery professionals throughout the state, there wouldn’t be a towing industry.

As the mission statement highlights, APTO is intended to educate, protect, and serve the men and women that make this industry so great. The level of hard work and dedication you exhibit is hard to find anywhere else. This association is here to leverage those qualities and help you be the best you can be.
